More air in...more exhaust out! Try an after market K & N tube type intake & custom exhaust system like Flow Master, many local exhaust shops sell & install them, or drop 2000+lbs & buy a Mustang!

Ill stick with air intake and exhaust no way in hell im buying a mustang

OK just kidding! Chill. People don't consider that a good set of directional tires like "Michelin Pilot Sport" inflated to the correct pressure (all the time) help so much too. You'll be surprised with the high flow intake/filter & custom exhaust to, it adds at least 20%+hp. over stock. And don't forget 91-93 octane gas & slippery Mobile 1 synthetic engine oil & NGK racing spark plugs too. Find someone who can tweak your ECU computer with an after market parts "chip". Then you'll have your "hot rod Lincoln"!

Don't forget upgrade to a more aggressive lsd or the added power will be useless. Also a shift kit msy keep your tranny alive a little longer. IF YOU DRIVE IT LIKE YOU DO UPGRADE THE BRAKES FIRST. The factory brakes are barely sufficient for the factory power and the brake fade is horrendous, this thing is scary on a racetrack. And trying to stop over 80mph is a joke. Brakes are my next upgrade after I freshen everything to factory specs in mine. After that reworked PI heads, cams, new aluminum(not plastic!) intake manifold, headers, high flow cats, bigger Tb, tune, and a well designed intake, some some cheap ass cone filter botch job that's gonna suck exhaust heat into the engine. Be smart about your mods, not cheap. Momentum is a better way to go fast than power. If you can't go fast with 90hp than 900 will do you no good.

And james flownasters are sound modifyersnnot performance mufflers. They actually in more cases than not add not a single bit of power or torque. There are many good brands, just research.

Super charger no seen a Mercury marauder turbo charged was running 9.20s in the 8th very nice ride and idk even know what all he'd done to the motor
